The poultry industry is a major cause of environmental degradation in United States for last hundred years. It’s not only harmful to chickens and humans, but other species like fish and land mammals. In nature, chickens in small flocks over wide areas contribute to health and beauty of land. However, thousands of chickens are crammed unnaturally into small areas. This causes heavy disease to spread around the environment due to unwholesome and unnatural confinement of living creatures.
Many colonists died because of the environment. The main reason the enviroment killed them was because of the contamination of the water, and tides. The contamination of the water happened when they dumped their waste into the river. The colonist thought the waste would wash up but instead it “tended to fester rather than flush away” according to document A written by Denni Blanton of William and Mary College. They would later drink the water and they would get ill and eventually die from diseases.
Fisherman, for the most part, aren’t like that and would rather help keep it clean because they care about the environment for the most part. Also, if the water becomes too polluted, then there would be no fish to catch. One stereotype that has the most truth to it is that fisherman lie, but mostly only about the size and how the fish was caught. Everyone lies, and fisherman are no exception to this. Afterall, fisherman only do it to spice up the story because who likes a boring story, and it wouldn’t be a fishing story if the size of the fish wasn’t exaggerated.
In James Hurst 's short story "The Scarlet Ibis" Hurst shows images of birds and how to watch your actions and the consequences that come with it, consequences can lead to life long regrets. The first spot Hurst 's shows birds is "Dead birds are bad luck, especially red dead birds." Regret symbolizes this quote because Doodle touched the dead bird, and Aunt Nicey told him not to touch it because it was bad luck. Doodle did anyway and he died later in the story. Another spot Hurst shows birds is "For a long time, it seemed forever, I lay there crying, sheltering my fallen Scarlet Ibis from the heresy of rain."
“1 in 6 Americans become sick with foodborne illnesses due to the horrendous sanitary conditions”(‘Food Processing & Slaughterhouses” 1). Feces and other contaminants flood the working environment of these workers. Salmonella and campylobacter are just some of the diseases that may develop in these disgusting factories and not even to mention mad cow disease.

Trends have indicated that the working conditions of slaughterhouses and the processes of animal slaughtering are not significantly changing anytime soon.
Zoos are bad for humans, most people do not believe it but zoos are not educating us, they are hurting us. Evidence for zoos are bad for humans is, in 2013, a zookeeper in Missouri was killed when he was knocked to the ground by an elephant, he died instantly.(Estrada). This reason this matters is because zoo animals are killing people, and that would not happen as often if they were left in the wild. Animals in films are not as nice as they are on camera. For example, the orca featured in the film “Blackfish,” is responsible for three human deaths.
The two hunter’s feel pity towards the eggs that they see, as they feel that most of them are going to be killed before the animal inside is even able to see the light of day, however this is ironic, as these hunter’s themselves are here to steal that light from the animals, which is made even worse when considering that the eggs would be killed for nourishment, while the humans will be killing for pleasure. The poet makes this irony even more effective in creating a sense of ethics in the reader by having the title of the poem as The Wild Duck’s Nest, even though that is not what the poem is about. Randolph Stow uses animals to successfully convey deeper emotional and philosophical thoughts and to create a sense of morality and ethics with the subject matter, theme and the literary devices. Through this, the reader realizes the message: humans are the ones to be afraid of, as the creatures that humans often fear are even more frightened of

The government wanted clean teeth, but instead got disease and death. The government wanted us to remain healthy and have fresh teeth with every drink of water, but we got sick and most had died yet they still continued with the fluoride.
